The caption below the picture read, " A Marble Falls [TX] police officer points her weapon during a Saturday standoff with a man who reportedly barricaded himself in his home for four hours."

Money permits you to obtain for your goods and your labor that which they are worth to the men who buy them, but no more.

Took a closer look, now I see the quite obvious problem -- scary.

The obvious coupled with not effectively using cover, sticking her elbow out there as far as possible to make a wider target, and, well, she's from Texas, and I see four strikes against her. ;)

I also noticed the elbow and lack of using the big black and white thing for cover. I can't count being Texan against anyone though!

Did any of you notice that her lip gloss and nail polish didn't match either?  Ok, I made that up to see who wasn't paying attention...

ok, I will bite.  I have had no training, but am very curious about what is wrong here.  Help a girl out?
